Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 1: IDEAL WOLFF (14)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: H Adamson
IDEAL WOLFF followed up his promising debut over six furlongs with a solid effort over this c&d next time out. He does have a wideish draw to overcome but retains the services of Gavin Lerena, so he will get all the necessary assistance from the saddle.
Race 5: OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE (1)
Jockey: S Khumalo - Trainer: F Habib
OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE is unbeaten in two runs over this distance and will be looking to preserve that record this afternoon. He also won his only start at this venue and S'manga Khumalo, who was on board in his last victory, retains the ride.
Race 6: BALLET SHOES (5)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: C Dawson
BALLET SHOES followed up her good debut win over a mile with an encouraging second-place finish over today's distance. She ran on well that day and should be involved in the finish once again, starting from a handy draw and with Gavin Lerena up.
Race 7: MARSHALL (1)
Jockey: R Simons - Trainer: M De Kock
MARSHALL won his first two starts, the second over this trip and was considered good enough to be entered into the Dingaans. He started favourite for the race, but was reported to be not striding out and that run is best ignored. He won his next start over 1450M to prove his well-being and he could complete his double here.
VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:
Race 4: MISS TYCOON (3)
Jockey: W kennedy - Trainer: C Dawson
MISS TYCOON has her peak run here. She has a win, a second and a third-place finish in three runs over this trip and looks to be the one to side with here. It is always encouraging when Warren Kennedy keeps faith in the ride and the Candice Dawson yard has been turning out the winners recently.
